“We both agreed what a good job Bethan did in what were quite trying circumstances. She took a very commercial view to the questions that were being posed and didn’t get too annoyed by the mass of inane questions coming from the other side, really good result and well done for her”

"FD provided more than we anticipated and with a level of professionalism that surpassed our previous advisors. It was a genuine pleasure to do business with them and there was an honest feeling of involvement with the whole process."
"Exceedingly professional and approachable at every level. I highly recommend his services."
"Steven has worked with us to close two leases on commercial property. His pricing is extremely competitive and his attention to detail is excellent. He works hard to make sure that the contract contains all of the information and benefits to you as the client. We will hire Steven again and plan on working together for a long time."
"I have worked with Paul over the course of approximately 10 years and can thoroughly recommend his knowledge of business law and expertise with regard to commercial property matters. I have no hesitation in referring my own clients to him."
I get a real buzz out of helping clients achieve their objectives. I’m here to serve as a trusted confidant and offer not just technical legal advice but also pragmatic and commercial input.
I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do growing up. I was never a natural scientist or mathematician and so that ruled out a lot of career choices! My decision to pursue a legal career was partly shaped by the glamorous representations of lawyers in film media but really, a lot of it was down to a yearning to follow in the footsteps of my older brother who is a solicitor. It’s proven to be the right decision as I really enjoy what I do.
Outside of work, I am kept busy by my two little children. I like to think that (generally) I am the “good cop” parent as I tend to spoil the kids. In the little spare time that I do have, I try and catch a movie or watch a box series (I get my money’s worth out of my Netflix subscription!) or head out for a ramble.
One word my colleagues would use to describe me is…
My superhero power would be…
The ability to understand and speak every human language, modern and ancient (including baby talk!)
